Update: May 14, 2022. The paper used for this portrait was from a pad purchased in 2000-02. Magnani Portofino paper has been “revamped.”
The current version of this paper is NOT one I would recommend for wet media work. You can see a post reviewing the currently available paper on this blog on May 16, 2022.
In today’s video I paint a black and white dog using a green-orange-purple secondary triad. (The still image is here at the top of the post. The video is at the bottom of this post.)
That pigment selection is a stretch from using my beloved PB60 and Burnt Sienna complementary pair for such subjects, i.e. black and white dogs. But it’s good to push ourselves.
I have been talking and sharing work from this palette on my Patreon site, for the past month or so; with some of the resultant images showing up here in different posts.
So it seemed inevitable that I would sketch a black and white dog with this triad. (For those of you who haven’t been regularly following my blog, I had two black and white Alaskan Malamute bitches, Emma and Dottie, whom I used to sketch, typically with PB60 and Burnt Sienna.)
While it’s always more fun to draw a live dog, current situations dictated that I draw from a photo. You can see Kelley Luckett’s inspiration photo at this link. (Museum app by Sktchy)
I hope you’ll enjoy seeing this video, watching me work, and learning a little bit about how I use my watercolors.
Take some time today to push yourself out of your comfort range. It’s great fun.
If the video doesn’t play for some reason you can view it on my Vimeo site.
It is also up on my Youtube Channel (RozStendahl).
